The experience of being invisible in our culture has ramifications that I don’t think any of us can really understand. I think that we need to see ourselves, in a lot of ways. It helps us know that we belong. And I think Rickie did that for a lot of people. I know that even for me, playing him, it helped me feel that I was validated in a lot of ways. And everything I heard from people who watched it was validating for me.
